    I have been working at Cracker Barrel full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Salary good but no focus on the guest

    Cons

    Pressure can be overwhelming at times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A total lack of focus on what matters. GM spends all day in office analizing numbers and talking on conference calls. Alot of our employees dont even know who the GM is.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Easy to advance if managers are on top of giving out evaluations

    I worked at Cracker Barrel full-time

    Pros

    Good training, rapid advancement opportunities, and pretty fast table turnover. Most people I there put in 5-10 years, so clearly people like it.

    Cons

    They tend to burn managers out fairly quickly -- if they don't quit after a year, they generally stop caring, and you have to hound them just to get your evaluations (can't get promotions without evaluations first).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add an extra associate manager per store, bring back the ETC position and make it operations analysis too.
